Federal safety regulators begin "Bakken Blitz" of crude oil rail shipments

http://www.pennenergy.com/articles/p...September32013

Quote:
The inspections, which Cynthia Quarterman, head of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, calls the "Bakken Blitz," are a response to the July rail disaster in Quebec ... Federal regulators were surprised by the incident because the type of oil on the train was unlikely to ignite. Inspectors are checking to make sure the quality of oil listed on the shipping papers was actually on the train, the AP said.

Can only find an AP link for now but Der Führer has vetoed the Keystone XL Pipeline Bill.

Thank heavens the Keystone pipeline is still stuck in limbo. Think of the possible environmental devastation.

Pipelines? We don't need no stinkin pipelines. Trains are much safer. Less chance for a spill. Morons.

Excerpt: TransCanada responds to the Obama:

Quote:
Today, misplaced symbolism was chosen over merit and science - rhetoric won out over reason.

The U.S. consumes over seven million barrels per day more oil than it produces and will continue to do so for decades, even despite U.S. oil production increases. It is disappointing the administration appears to have said yes to more oil imports from Iran and Venezuela over oil from Canada, the United States' strongest ally and trading partner, a country with rule of law and values consistent with the U.S.

Today's decision deals a damaging blow to jobs, the economy and the environment on both sides of the border.

Through the course of its review, the U.S. State Department issued five very comprehensive and balanced scientific reviews of Keystone XL since 2010. Tens of thousands of pages of evidence from its own employees and agencies irrefutably show Keystone XL is the safest, most environmentally sound way to transport needed energy to Americans.

These reviews further found that approval or denial of Keystone XL would be unlikely to significantly impact the rate of production in the oil sands, or the continued demand for heavy crude oil at refineries in the United States.

In addition, the State Department's review presented compelling evidence that clearly should have satisfied the President's stated test that Keystone XL would not significantly exacerbate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The State Department's January 31, 2014 Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement also concluded that the total annual GHG emissions transporting oil by rail to the Gulf Coast is about 42 percent greater compared to transporting that same oil through Keystone XL.

America has built the equivalent of 10 Keystone pipelines since 2010 — and nobody said anything
